Help needed. Please note that I am desilexic. I have a writing and comprehension problem. Sometimes get lost in what i am trying too put forward. Here goes I have a photographic business in London. My business is comprised of*****arches, two of the arches are used fro photograhics and third as a workshop. As part of my business I set up a canteen that could facility the preparation of foods for my clients. For This part of the business I got in a Individual to help with this part a preparing food and suppling of food, he intern could then also suppling to the public the odd sandwich and coffee. We had an agreement which started in March of this year, which my father had help set out, Unfortunately it was not as sound as I thought it was. My goal is to have this individual removed from my premises. How is the question? I receive 25 % of his profits. In the beginning all was ok until a month or 2 in when we noticed the that there where some additional accounting costs that had been adding in for the months of january and feburay. Based on our findings we found that the accounts had been manipulated. At this point I wrote and informed the individual that the the agreement between the 2 of us had been cancel. I then received a response where he denied any wrong doing and that he would not leave. It has carried on like this over the past 6 months. Part of the agreement was that he paid me by the 10th of each month. He was late on 5 of the occasion. Again I wrote and informed him that he was i breach of our agreement, which then again disputed. To cap everything off i am entitled to audit his books. On supplying the information to my account it was wound that the business owner has not conducted his business in accordance with HMRC rules. According to the audit HMRC laws, any business within the catering field needs to run a PAYE system. This has not happened. The individuals employees invoice him and he pays them. He has not deducted Taxes or National Insurance nor has he paid his part of there employers Ni. ON requesting the invoice for his staff it has come to light that this individual could have generated the invoices on behalf of his staff. What i found weird was that his company registration number appeared on there invoices and all of the invoice are identical. I Wrote to the individual asking him to supply me in writing that his business practise was legal, to this i have not received a reply. My last letter to him goes as such. This was curtisy letter to him as him to verify the imformstion before sending it the HMRC Dear Sirs Re XXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX, trading as the Tuck Shop, located at the XXXXXX XXX-XXX XXXXXXX XXXXX , XXXXXXX As part of my studio business I make some space available to the Tuck shop to supply our clients with catering and coffee facilities. The understanding with the operator of the Tuck Shop, Mr. Magnus XXXX, is that he runs this business independent from my business and as such he does his own accounts. I am entitled to audit his books in order to establish the monthly amount he pays me for the space used. This understanding with Mr. XXXX started on the 1st March 2014. Recently we obtained information for the first audit. Mr. XXXX’s practice is to let all his staff invoice him for their labour and he pays them according to this invoice. My accountant Mr. S N Bartarya has queried this practice as he is of the opinion that this does not meet with HMRC requirements for PAYE. I wrote to Mr. XXXX and asked him to get for me in writing from his accountant, Mr. Barry XXXXXXXXXXX of Moose Accountants, the necessary assurances that this practice of paying his full time staff is within your regulations. Although I requested this information by a certain date, I did not receive it. I would appreciate it if you could let me have your ruling on the legality of the above practice. Copies of invoices are included for your perusal. After his I received a letter which unfortunately is to long to submit. The just is that he claims that i could be in breach under the DATA protection act for supply his information. AT this point i have not supplied any therefore I can not be in breach. So if this individual is in breach and has committed fraud where do i stand HOW do i get his individual removed for my premises as he is jeopardising my contract with Transport For London. TFL. His business partner is a lawyer so he is getting sound advise. I have much more information than I can possibly write. What steps do i ned to take in order to remove this individual from my Premises. Can i simply remove him from my property?
